Build Your Country Home at Arlington Woods in Dexter

July 26, 2019

As a longtime Dexter builder, we’ve had people frequently ask when we’d be starting something new. We’re excited to be able to announce, “it’s here!” Build your country home at Arlington Woods in Dexter, MI, where you can revel in the quiet life that’s so satisfying—open spaces, the sounds of nature, and a big yard you just won’t find in the heart of the city. That’s the lifestyle Norfolk Homes is creating for those few people who will have the chance to seize the opportunity.

Arlington Woods will have just 16 homes. We want to keep it an intimate space where people can enjoy the rambling landscapes and scenic views. The lots—which range from ¾ of an acre to more than a full acre—are tucked into the 34-acre, open space preservation community. Your back yard will face the natural surroundings, not another home, because that’s the serenity we want to give our Arlington Woods families.

While you’ll revel in the peaceful environment here, you won’t have a long drive to the wide variety of things just beyond Arlington Woods. Downtown Dexter is a few miles away, and if you haven’t yet explored this small town, you’d be surprised at the unique array of locally owned shops and restaurants. Take the time to visit the local treasures. Your hometown’s downtown is lined with places where you’ll see friends and neighbors in a village-like atmosphere. When you want an outdoor experience, Dexter is the place to be. Fishing in the Huron River or Mill Creek, hiking or biking the nature trails, taking in the peacefulness of the many parks, shopping at the farmers market, and sharing the city’s pride in its resident cultural scene—they’re all pieces of the big picture of Dexter’s small town life.

The Dexter schools are highly acclaimed for delivering a well-rounded, quality education—one more reason families choose to move here.

When you’re feeling a need for urban activity, Ann Arbor is just 9 miles from Dexter. Take nearby I-94 and, in 15 minutes, you can be in the heart of this beautiful city, such a contrast to your country life at Arlington Woods. The airport is only a 35-minute drive from Arlington Woods, and Detroit is also commutable, less than an hour away. 

Norfolk Homes has a complete portfolio of home designs for our new Dexter neighborhood. Are you thinking about a single-level home? Choose from 4 ranch floor plans: The Boulder (1,603 square feet), The Lancaster (1,619 square feet), The Kensington (1,752 square feet), and The Natural MI (1,933 square feet). Our 5 two-story floor plans give you a choice, from 2,443 to 2,978 square feet. The Middleton features a first-floor master suite, with 3 more bedrooms on the second floor.

The first home has just begun construction at Arlington Woods and will be available for purchase, so you can soon see The Chesterfield, our largest floor plan for this neighborhood. We have cul-de-sac lots now available, but, like the community itself, they’re in short supply. While we develop Arlington Woods, come visit our sales center, located at Westchester Farms in Chelsea.

In Norfolk Homes’ 20 years of experience building new homes in Dexter, we’ve seen the city double in size. Dexter is an inviting place for many lifestyles—just starting out to down-sizing. No matter where you are along this homebuying spectrum, you can find the right place and space at Arlington Woods. Contact Norfolk Homes to learn more about the limited number of new construction homes coming to Dexter.

It was great meeting with the two of you the other day. We had a blast picking out our options and are really excited to move forward on our home.
